What God Sees

     I recently heard Jo Saxton speak at the IF: LOCAL Gathering in Papillion via LiveStream.
     She shared this (see image) with us and it was a beautiful reminder of how God sees us all.  
     At times, we feel we are unworthy and we put our identity in that.  But always remember that God does not see that in us—we have a new identity in Christ!

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand.  Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.  For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.  -Colossians 3:1-3

     It’s the same story with the guests we serve.  At times all they see is the negative and put their identity in that, but God has given us a new identity in Christ!  My prayer is that we would have eyes to see ourselves and others the way that God sees us!  May God use us to show people who their identity in Christ is, and may they be encouraged to walk that out on a daily basis!

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  –John 3:17
